Summer Stuff a Van’s
Friday, June 22nd / 2pm -6pm / All Cambridge Zehrs Locations
Saturday, July 14th /10am-3pm/TBD
Saturday, August 11th/10am-3pm/TBD
A few times a month, we partner with a local grocery store around town and reach out to our community! We bring our big empty van out bright and early in the morning with the goal of stuffing it full of nutritious items. It’s an opportunity for our community to engage with our friendly volunteers and ask questions about the food bank and also a convenient way to donate our most needed items of the month. It’s also the easiest way to donate fresh produce to the Food Bank, as you can drop your donations off on your way out of the store to our truck, which goes directly back to the food bank at the end of the day.
